Headdress

1 year Art in Bloom participant

Floral Products Used: tinted pampas grass, stock, tulip, solidago, genestra, olive branches

We visualized the movement of this headress in the wind, emulating the feathers with a vibrant ombre of cascading tulips, daffodils, and grasses to honor and celebrate the victory in battle and bravery of the warrior.

Floral Arrangement Inspired by...

headdress with leather cap/headpiece with beaded band around front top with white beads with two lines of blue triangles, two red bars and two lines of red and orange triangles at either end; long red wool strips at each side of headdress, backed with buffalo hide; brown and cream eagle feathers overall; some feathers at top have light brown horsehair strands attached to ends; eagle feather at center back accented with bright red and bright purple feathers; images of cows' heads drawn on leather beneath feathers on crown of head
